The writing community is full of encouraging people that know the value of a small kindness. It always amazes how wonderful you all are. You've made me smile on bad days and given strength when I feel like giving up. Are we feeling like a group hug yet?
Wait! I want to do something for you. All of you. It's the very least I can do for a community that has done so much for me.
For the first ten people to email me, send five pages of anything you've written, and I will critique them. A novel chapter, a short story, a query. I'll give you my honest opinion. My strengths are with romance and action scenes. So if you need to know if a scene is steamy or if you want some help giving an action scene more oomph, I can help. I'm a blunt and honest critic. Not everything I say will be pretty, but I compliment the positive as well as point out what needs work. I've worked a lot this past year on honing my critique skills. A fresh pair of eyes might be of some help for you. Just click on my profile to contact me or go right from my site.
You guys rock!
I have a thank you and a reminder for you too.
A big thank you to the awesome Clare Dugmore for passing on to me the Kreativ Blogger award. She is a talented young writer and has a fantastic blog. Go check it out!
A reminder that Monday starts Cherie Reich's 2nd Annual Flash Fiction Blogfest. This year, the prompt is "Lightning flashed." A dramatic beginning! She has some great prizes. Head on over and sign up.
